Data and analytics are central to how modern organisations and governments take decisions and execute plans. Online retailers, companies, governments and tech giants are investing millions in ramping up their ability to collect and analyse data.
In these unprecedented times, when companies are struggling to adapt, it becomes all the more important to use data-driven models for decision-making.
Data and Analytics Virtual Summit-West Africa to be held on July 15 to 16, 2020 as a virtual conference will be the largest event focused on data and analytics aimed to empower African businesses and government entities to capitalise on the data and turn them into insights that drive growth.
It will help African ministries and large enterprises develop an understanding of how data-driven models can improve decision-making. They will learn how to extract insights from data to shape policy.
Sanjay Swamy, Co-Founder and Director of Strategic Partnerships, MarTech Vibe, said: “Businesses in the Sub Saharan region are rapidly adopting data and analytics tools and see it as a source of competitive advantage. According to a report published by KPMG, organisations in Nigeria alone are looking to spend up to N50 million annually to build their D&A capabilities.
“We have carefully crafted the programme, keeping in mind the key challenges the region faces right from identifying the right solutions providers to building the right talent capabilities. Now is the right time for businesses to focus on data and analytics or they get left behind.”
The two-day virtual summit opens with experts from regional companies including the National Information Development Agency, Nigeria; GTBank PLC, Chevron, Wakanow, Dangote Group, First City Monument Bank, Axa Mansard, Eat ‘n’ Go and many more.
With 14 confirmed sessions already, the virtual experience will be unparalleled in scope and expertise.
